Sasol denies allegations of intentionally polluting river

"Response to Sasol intentionally polluting the Vaal River"

Sasol categorically refutes any allegation that we have intentionally polluted (or continue to pollute) the Vaal River, or any other water source. Sasol fully appreciates that any such actions would not only be irresponsible, but constitute offences and invoke serious criminal and administrative sanctions under the suite of environmental laws we are subject to. Given the nature of our operations and the associated impacts thereof, we recognise our responsibility to ensure responsible environmental management. Legal compliance is fundamental to this and our commitment in this regard remains steadfast.
